“Great fun!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012 via mobile

Great fun for kids and a way to really simulate skydiving indoors. Just make sure the power doesn't go out while you're in the air :-)

“Have to try it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

I was lucky to go with my work to try this out and it was a great time. It seems like a lot of $$ for a short period of time but it is well worth it!! It's a great thrill if that's what you're looking for!

“It's expensive, but oh so fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012 via mobile

This is one of those attractions that you wish was less expensive so you could do it everyday! It isn't cheap, but it is an amazing place to go, so save your pennies and do it!

There are only nine of these in the entire Country so we are lucky to have it nearby. The staff is very well trained and friendly (a job requirement per the owner who I spoke with- she makes them song impromptu before she'll consider hiring them just to be sure they are spunky). Although 4 mins in flight doesn't seem like a long time, it is equal to about 4 regular skydives. So if you want to experience skydiving in a very safe way, this is a perfect option.

Go a little earlier then they tell you to get there so you can watch others....very entertaining. And if possible, find out when the pros will be training and book your time around them. It is great fun to watch real skydivers train, great for kids and adults alike to watch.

Kids older than 3 are able to go, and we saw some very young kids enjoy it so don't hesitate to bring youngsters.


Tip: Encourage the instructor (the person who goes with you when you fly) to show you how good they are on their own. You will be dumbfounded by what they are able to pull off......amazing!

“Rated #1 for a Reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

Went there with my wife and 12 yr old, both of which thought I was leading them to their doom. The instructor couldn't have been better at putting them (and me) at ease and to put it mildly, we had a BLAST!! For $15 you can get a CD for your "flight" and when we were done, the instructor, showed us how you really fly and he was amazing. I only wish they were closer to home but on 2nd thought, I'd be broke.
Great Fun, absolutely recommend going there at least once, you won't regret it.
